Community-Based Supports

 

Community-Based Supports include services that provide direct support and assistance for individuals to achieve and/or maintain independence, productivity, enhanced family functioning, and inclusion in the community. Community-Based Supports include one-one-one training and supervision of individuals as they learn and perform the various tasks that are included in basic self-care and activities of daily living, develop social skills, and participate in community-based activities.

Some examples of Community Based Supports Activities are:

  • Support from staff to enable an individual to attend an event, take a class, etc.   

  • Support from staff to assist an individual participating in activities such as:

    •  assistance in completing activities of daily living, ordering off a menu, purchasing items, learning basic cooking, laundry skills, etiquette, travel training, accessing activities in the community, etc.

  • One-on-one tutoring

  • Support on a job site to assist in basic self-care, social skills, and activities of daily  living.
